Pours a fizzy, flat white head atop a golden, orange brew. Extremely bubbly, giving an otherwise fairly clear appearance a bit of haziness. Good retention.

Sharp, tart, musty aroma; dusty, with a hint of cheese; dry wheat crackers; hay; sharp in a non-citrus way; bit of pepper.

Soft, light, tart, funky, musty; the funk flavors (cheese, black pepper, hay, dust) hit right up front, but then quickly and effortlessly meld into the slightly sweet, slightly acidic and tart malt body.

Absolutely no hint of alcohol, which is remarkable for an 8% gueuze. Perhaps a slight warming in the chest. Mouthfeel is full, rich, and creamy, with slight foaming and sting up front. Very lively.

This is an excellent gueuze, and far superior to Boon's other offerings, in my limited experience. The Mariage Parfait series has not yet disappointed me.

Corked bottle poured into Chimay chalice 2010 vintage

A: dark straw colored good clarity lively carbonation

S: lots of wood barrel and vinegar maybe a little hay

T: bursts onto your tongue with a lot of oak and vinegar with a little underlying sweetness that is there then gone and a nice sour finish

M: Bubbly light body does not linger much on the tongue pretty clean finish

O: I'm not a wine drinker so maybe I can't appreciate this style it's just over carbonated vinegary sourness. it is refreshing but I do not look for these.
